Check out the cute photo of my youngest daughter in a Belle costume. Disney gave me the gown and accessories to celebrate the release of Beauty and the Beast. My oldest daughter has seen the movie three times already. She really loves it. I really like the film too. It’s a love story and a musical with wonderful songs. I also like the messages in the movie: inner beauty is more important than how you look on the outside, the right person can bring out the best in you, and a woman doesn’t have to settle for just any man to be happy. The film is excellent and I think everyone will enjoy it. Beauty and the Beast is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD. Note: Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (WDSMP) sent me a Blu-ray to review on my dad blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.

Rock Dog (giveaway) is an animated film about a guard dog (Bodi) that wants to become a musician. His father is against this, but Bodi follows his heart and his dream eventually does come true. The film is a mix of comedy and music, but my two youngest kids like this movie mainly for the humor. They think the film is funny. BTW, Rock Dog is rated PG for action and language. Rock Dog is available now on digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on May 23rd. Note: I received a movie for review on my blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
The Space Between Us is a light drama with a touch of romance and sci-fi. It’s about a human boy born on Mars who returns to Earth. He hooks up with his penpal girlfriend and goes on a quest to find his father. It’s essentially a coming-of-age story about a boy who grew up in a sheltered environment and a girl that doesn’t quite fit in at school. Even though I was expecting a sci-fi story, I still enjoyed the movie because I liked the interaction between the two main characters. The Space Between Us is available now on digital HD and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on May 16th. Note: Universal Pictures Home Entertainment sent me a movie for review on my dad blog.
DreamWorks Animation is premiering their new series, Spirit Riding Free, exclusively on Netflix on Friday, May 5th. We have not seen the new original series yet, but we’ve seen the movie it was based on. I think the kids liked the animated film because we’ve seen it multiple times. Thanks to Netflix and Paramount, I’m giving away a Spirit prize pack on my dad blog. The prize pack consists of a DIY picture frame, a friendship bracelet making kit, a journal, a bandana, a plush toy, and the Spirit Riding Free book.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is re-releasing A League of Their Own on Blu-ray on April 18th. It’s been a long time since I’ve watched this movie. I liked it 25 years ago, and I still think it’s excellent after watching it again recently. The story is about two sisters joining the first women baseball team. It’s a humorous drama, but I think most parents will appreciate the underlying message that women can live their dream.
